Quest to make Sarawak a sports powerhouse by 2024

THIRTEEN new projects have been identified for implementation under the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) to make Sarawak a sports destination and sports powerhouse.

Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah disclosed this in his winding-up speech in the State Assembly sitting last month.

Among the projects shovelready for implementation is the Sarawak High-Performance Centre (HPC), a key component of a forward-looking plan to help Sarawak achieve its vision and mission to become the country’s sports powerhouse by 2024.

“Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is very supportive of the HPC project which has also been given the nod by the State Cabinet.

“We’re now waiting for the State government to work out the budget and construction will start next year, taking 16 to 18 months to complete,” he told thesundaypost.
